What A Girl Needs

Thank you for taking the time to do my tutorial. I hope you enjoy it, and would love to see your results, and receive your feedback! This tutorial was written by Mellie on January 22, 2014 and is copyright to me, the way I word thing's and the images that I use. All other images are copyright to their respective owners, including tubes/art, font and scrapkits and templates should not be used without purchasing or written permission, nor without reading their terms of use. This tutorial is for education purposes only and is in no way intended to be used as any other purpose. This tutorial was written with the tube and kit in mind that is being shown, therefore, you may have to adjust your setting's should you choose to use images not suggested here, in this tutorial. For this tutorial, you will need several things. Paint Shop Pro (I am using version X), and a good working knowledge of how to operate it. You will also need this IB scrapkit made by talented Monti. The tube by Pinup Toons, which can be purchased here. Please do not use artist's work without purchasing! You'll also need a font of choice. This mask, and this mask, which is WSL340 by Weescots Lass :)

Let's begin, shall we? :)
Open a new, transparent canvas, 800 pixels by 800 pixels. Open both of the masks. Flood fill your blank canvas with paper 4, the pink one, and add WSLMask 240. Merge group in your layer palette. Add another new layer and flood fill with paper 5, add mask 
0mask046_LT. Merge group in your layer palette. Close the masks. Open Monti's frame 1 and copy/paste as a new layer onto your canvas. Resize if needed. Using the magic wand tool, select the inside of the frame, Selections>Modify>Expand by 1 pixel, add a new layer, and fill with paper 4. Move this layer below the frame layer. Open element 23 and paste as a new layer, while still selected, selections>invert and on element 23 layer, tap delete on keyboard. Resize as needed. Open element 22, copy/paste as a new layer while still selected, selections>invert and on element 22 layer, tap delete on keyboard. Resize as needed, sharpen and add drop shadow. Deselect this layer, and duplicate>Image>Mirror>Image>Flip. Add your tube, making sure she is the top layer. Try to line up her legs so that she blends in with the frame as shown below.

Resize as needed, sharpen and add drop shadow to the tube layer. Add remaining elements as shown, resizing as desired. Sharpen and add drop shadows on each layer.
Add name and copyright information. Merge and save!
Thank you for doing this tutorial. I'm glad you stopped by. I hope to have more tutorials in the near future, so keep checking back. :)
